Technical analysis vs Fundamental analysis

There are two possible methods for analyzing markets in order to make decisions regarding trading: technical analysis and fundamental analysis.

Fundamental analysis focuses in spotting economical, social and political news & factors that may affect the price of a currency pair, a stock, an index etc. Analysts always try to find a fair price for a tradeable asset so they can investigate trading opportunities.

Technical analysis is a trading tool for spotting trading opportunities too but it is based on statistical analysis of charts and assets such as the price, the volume, the volatility etc. A basic technical analysis principle is that the market movements are not random and that somehow the past markets behaviour repeats itself in the future. Technical analysis has a series of tools such as technical indicators & oscillators, price action, patterns etc

Although fundamental analysis looks more simple and familiar, it has two very important disadvantages though:

  1. An individual trader learns the market news most likely much later than the big players
  2. An individual trader is not able to translate market news into trading action: it takes a lot of experience and knowledge in finance to do that.
